Therapist in Madison, Wisconsin Scott Allen, LPC-IT

Scott Allen, LPC-IT

As a person on the autism spectrum, Scott knows that typical social assumptions don’t work for autistic people. He knows from experience that autistic challenges are extremely complex. Scott is skilled at putting those complexities into words for the benefit of others. Scott has a high degree of social and emotional awareness and understanding – abilities usually considered deficiencies for people on the autism spectrum.

Scott specializes in working with autistic clients and their families and partners. His position is that autism is not pathological, and that many or most challenges faced by autistic people are due to the social reactions of others. He can help you reach a better understanding of yourself, your situation, and other people. Scott’s approach is customized to your social and emotional needs. He won’t devalue or delegitimize you or your diagnosis, because he has one, too. He’s experienced various challenges of being on the autism spectrum, and he can help you with yours.

Scott’s theoretical perspective draws from rational-emotive behavior therapy (REBT), narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, existential therapy, and psychosocial education. He works with non-cognitively-impaired clients 14 years old and up. He is particularly experienced with young adults who are making the transition into adulthood.
